I have the sweetest memories of Betty and her kindness. She was always a gentle woman and someone that I really liked. She loved her family selflessly and she cared deeply about them.

5 years have passed. So much I would want to tell you. Your oldest grandson is in the army and is 24. All your grandkids are growing up so fast, too fast really. It's hard for me to look at pictures of you and not think about how kind and sweet you were too me. I'll love you forever. Always in my thoughts.

Two years have passed but the pain persists. She never failed to support me every step of my career and every time we relocated. She is everywhere in this house but she is not here. Life goes on but not the same life. I will always love her.

Two years ago today I lost my mom to cancer. I still struggle to construct my thoughts about how much I miss her and what she meant to me, all that she did for me and all that she did for me that I never even knew about. What a great mother. I remember you fondly this day. I love you always.

Remembering my mom today. I'll never forget your unwavering love and belief in me. You were so sweet and kind to me. Your loving son.

Thinking of my sweet Nana right now, I miss her so much. I cannot even begin to describe what she meant to me, and I am so thankful that she is safely in the arms of her Savior! I cannot wait to see her again one day. I love you Nana!

Mom, I miss you everyday. You were filled with so much love for your family. I love you so much. You fought your cancer with such strength and dignity. An inspiration to a lot of people.

I miss you so much, Mom! Thanks for all the things you taught me. I am so thankful for all the trips we got to take together, Our last trip to D.C. was such an amazing time. All that walking - and you never seemed to get tired. I could tell you anything and you were always my biggest cheerleader. I love you.

Remembering this day a year ago. Dad and I watched Mom breathe her last breath a few minutes after midnight. Nothing prepares you for that. I praise Jesus for her life.

Death leaves a heartache that no one can heal,
Love leaves a memory that no one can steal.

from an Irish tombstone.

She would have been 70 today. I would have been shopping for diamonds yesterday. I will always love her.
